Americana Refrigerator freezer is warm but refrigerator is cool

Common solutions for: Americana Refrigerator freezer is warm but refrigerator is cool

01 - Evaporator Fan Motor
The evaporator fan motor draws air over the evaporator (cooling) coils and circulates it throughout the refrigerator and freezer compartments. Some refrigerators have more than one evaporator fan motor. On refrigerators with two evaporators, there will be an evaporator located in both the freezer and refrigerator compartments. If the evaporator fan is not working, it will not circulate the cold air in the compartment. If this occurs, the refrigerator may still get cold, while the freezer will no...t get cold or vice versa. To determine if the evaporator fan motor is defective, try turning the fan blade by hand. If the fan blade does not turn freely, replace the fan motor. Additionally, if the motor is unusually noisy, replace it. Finally, if the motor does not run at all, use a multimeter to test the motor windings for continuity. If the windings do not have continuity, replace the evaporator fan motor.

02 - Water Filter
Water filters are often neglected. A plugged up water filter can slow the water flow and may also let some of the contaminates through. If the water filter has not been replaced recently, you should try replacing the filter. If you don't have a water filter one can be added to the incoming supply line. It is recommended to replace the water filter every 6 months or less depending on the water quality.

03 - Condenser Fan Motor
The condenser fan motor draws air though the condenser coils and over the compressor. If the condenser fan motor is not working properly, the refrigerator won’t cool properly. To determine if the fan motor is defective, first check the fan blade for obstructions. Next, try turning the fan motor blade by hand. If the blade does not spin freely, replace the condenser fan motor. If no obstructions are present and the fan blade spins freely, use a multimeter to test the fan motor for continuity. If ...the condenser fan motor does not have continuity, replace it.

04 - Inverter Board
The inverter board controls the power to the compressor. The main control board monitors the temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer compartments and sends signals to the inverter board. The inverter board varies the compressor speed depending on temperature change and run time.

06 - Compressor
The compressor is a pump which compresses the refrigerant and circulates the refrigerant through the evaporator and condenser coils. If the compressor is not working, the refrigerator won’t cool. However, this is rarely the case. Before replacing the compressor, first check all of the more commonly defective parts. If you have determined that all of the other components are working properly, check the compressor. Use a multimeter to test the continuity between the electrical pins on the side of ...the compressor. If there is an open circuit, the compressor is likely defective. If the compressor is defective, it must be replaced by a licensed technician.
